Corner of My Heart Crochet Pattern

Heart Crochet Pattern


This pouch is big enough to hold a gift card, concert tickets, some candies… and if you want, instead of throwing it to the wayside, you can put a small pouch of potpourri inside it and use it in a drawer. Heck, I even thought that after I use it for Valentine’s Day, it is thick enough to use as a hot pad on my counter.

This pattern is in two parts. The first part is written. It is the basic pattern to get the cloth. The heart shape comes in the form of folds and whip stitching, which I have decided would be easier to show you using video.


Materials

Hook Size: I

Colors:

- Red Heart Super Saver “Hot Red”

- a scrap of Red Heart Super Saver pink (or a small piece of any color you like; pink or white work best for Valentine’s Day). 1-2 feet of yarn will do.

You will need a yarn needle to whip stitch the heart together.


Abbreviations

ch = chain

st = stitch

hdc = half double crochet


Instructions

Using red:

Ch 40

Row 1

hdc in 3rd ch from hook

hdc in every st to the end (total of 38 hdc’s at end of row)
Row 2 – 8

ch 2, turn work

hdc in every st to the end

At the end of row 8, cut the yarn and tie off – leave a long tail so you can sew with it later.

The above gives you a long, red rectangular piece. The heart is created by folding the material and whip stitching it using a yarn needle. How to fold the material is shown in the video below.
